As so­prano Tracy Cantin talks about trav­el­ling to P.E.I. this week, there are rip­ples of ex­cite­ment in her voice.

“I am ec­static about re­turn­ing home to see my fam­ily and friends. Then to be able to come back and per­form, I couldn’t be any hap­pier,” says the Summerside na­tive who will be fea­tured at a recital to­day at Dr. Steel Recital Hall, UPEI, be­gin­ning at 7:30 p.m.

I have two broth­ers and two sis­ters. We all earned a mod­est but com­fort­able liv­ing and made plans for our re­tire­ment — ex­cept for one. He blew his money on cars, va­ca­tions and gam­bling. He re­tired as early as pos­si­ble, and be­cause of it he doesn’t get much So­cial Se­cu­rity. Now he’s broke.

He thinks one of us should take him in and com­plains that we are a “bad fam­ily” be­cause no one has of­fered to let him live with us. None of our re­tire­ment plans were made with pro­vi­sions for him. He is self­ish, ir­ri­tat­ing and un­trust­wor­thy. I don’t want to spend my re­tire­ment be­ing mis­er­able. What do I do? — RE­TIRED IN CHICAGO
